Qatar Participates in Arab League Workshop on Terrorism and Human Rights

Cairo, - Qatar participated Thursday in a workshop on terrorism and protecting human rights. The event took place at the Arab League Council's headquarters.

Qatar's delegation included assistant director of the human rights department at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs HE Sheikh Mohammed bin Youssef Jassim Al-Thani and assistant director of the international cooperation department at the Ministry of Interior Brigadier Nasser Youssef Al Mal, who is also a member of the country's national committee for combatting terrorism.
